Early Uber Engineer Launches Pager

Getting doctors to house calls has been made easier with the development of Pager. This is a new invention which has been welcomed into the new world of telemedicine and is going to make house calls better and easier for those living in Manhattan. So if you live on this busy New York suburb and have a mobile device along with the willingness to shell out $300 then you are ready for your own doctor right at your door step.

Pager is a mobile application which is going to allow the residents of Manhattan to request–via a location-based mobile app–a nighttime or weekend visit from a doctor. It is expected that the new application will also be spread to other areas as well and the hours of availability will also exceed most likely. This might sound a bit like ubering a doctor and you wont be wrong if you think that way. The technology for the app was built by Pager co-founder Oscar Salazar, an engineer who was part of the team that built Uber, the taxi-on-demand company. “The idea is worth nothing, it’s making it a reality, that is what matters,” he said last month as he sat with his co-founders while demonstrating the app. Salazar is also involved with Ride, a location-based, ride-sharing company.

It’s tough these days to be a doctor,” he said. “There are so many stressors that have nothing to do with actually seeing patients. It all chips away from your time and giving good quality care.” He says he’s drawn to the opportunity to focus on the one-on-one patient care that house calls afford. The average shift for a Pager doctor will range from four to eight hours.”
